Nantucket Energy Study Committee
This report, prepared for the Nantucket Energy Study Committee, addresses important background information which can be used to study the feasibility of implementing land-based wind turbines on Nantucket. Through interviews with key informants and archival research, the project team addressed pertinent laws, regulations, and permits; ownership and financial arrangements; and concerns regarding implementing wind turbines on Nantucket. The project provides a timeline to address laws, regulations and permits; evaluates the financials of different turbine sizing options; recommends how to mitigate concerns; and ultimately proposes how Nantucket should proceed with their land-based wind project.
